Avatarium premiere a brand new live video for their version of a traditional gospel song »In My Time Of Dying«
Swedish heavy doom rock act Avatarium premiere a brand new live video for »In My Time Of Dying« taken from their live album and concert film, »An Evening With Avatarium«, out on December 4th, 2020 via Nuclear Blast Records.
The band comments: “This is a traditional gospel song that has been recorded by many great musicians such as Blind Willie Johnson, Bob Dylan and Led Zeppelin.
We wanted to do our own take on this song and this is the last recorded version. This song is sometimes a part of our live set and we try to do it a little different each time for our own amusement and also to make every live show an unique event for each listener. Music for us is something that is created in the moment and by humans interacting together in a way that machines never can recreate. We hope you enjoy this version and that we see you soon on the roads again!”
Avatarium released the show from legendary Nalen in Stockholm as a concert film to download and live album. This was the first show on what should have been the Avatarium tour 2020 and was recorded right before the outbreak of Covid-19.
Nalen is a beautiful Swedish venue built in 1888. Between 1930 and the end of 60’s Nalen was the most important music and culture arena in Stockholm.
The concert was filmed with 5 cameras by Blackbox and edited by Magnus Stenvinkel. The sound was mixed by Viktor Stenqvist and now remastered by Chartmakers (Candlemass, Rammstein).
This is a one and a half hour full show with Avatarium that shows a band that loves what they are doing and knows how to deliver both excellent musicianship and majestic artistry!
